We bought 2 polish hens and 1 polish roo the other day. The hens are a joy <3 Simply sweethearts! I'm not so sure about Calypso, the 1 1/2 y/o roo. First off, the woman said he was friendly...then refused to catch him by hand, opting to use a net. His spurs also appear to have been cut. Secondly, they have supposedly received no human contact (living in a big coop) but the hens are friendly and not afraid of people. Calypso, however, won't even eat the tastiest treats from my hand. When getting the girls today to leg band them, I picked up Calypso so get him out of the way, and he freaked out so bad that I had to put him back down within 4 (Mississippi) seconds of picking him up. He also glared at me a few times today. It may sound silly, but I'm paranoid. Roosters tend to hate me. I was the first person our old roo Hannibal attacked, and am the only person Eagle has ever attacked. I was never nervous of roosters until they started attacking me. Mom said since Calypso is 1 1/2 year old and "isn't mean yet" (supposedly) he wont get mean. However, both of our roos that attacked me were indeed over 1 1/2 year old and hadn't attacked anyone prior. The polishes are living in a cage temporarily until we finish building their building and coop, since we don't want our turkeys and hens to pick on them (Calypso's tail had been plucked out by the woman's other chickens, all except for one feather) so we have yet to observe Calypso's "true" behavior. What do everyone's polish roos act like? Are they friendly or aggressive? Mom said polishes are mellow and not aggressive, but I've read some posts about aggressive polish roos on here. If Calypso becomes aggressive, he unfortunately has to go. I have to be able to get into the polish coop (once its finished) without having to worry about getting attacked... Here's a picture of him where his dull spurs are visible. Do they look clipped? We've never clipped our roos' spurs, so I don't know what to look for.
